Egypt counters Western claim of bomb in Russian plane crash
NEARLY two months after the crash of a Russian plane in Egypt, Cairo has countered Russian claim that the plane crash was as a result of a bomb planted in the plane.
This followed reports from a preliminary investigation conducted by Egyptian authorities into the crash which occurred in Sinai.
In their preliminary reports Egyptian investigators said they had not found anything to indicate a bomb was involved.
Aljazeera quoting a statement released on yesterday by Ayman el-Muqadam said the investigation committee so far had not found “any evidence” indicating foul play in the October 31 downing of the plane, killing all 224 people onboard, contradicting Russian and Western governments’ claims that the Metrojet was brought down by a bomb.
The investigators analysed the plane’s 38 computers and two engine computers and is currently checking the technical details of the plane and repairs carried out since it was manufactured.
